HISTORY OF THE PRINCIPALS
What the Veasrla Arc aaa War They
Hanaea Be Slartlna;
CAPE HAYTIEN. Haytl, Sept. 7. Crete-A-rierrot
was a steel vessel of 930 tons
displacement. It waa armed with one 6.2
Inch gun, one 4.7, tour S. Inch, two Maxim
machine guns and four Nordenteldt ma
chine guns. Crete-A-Plerrot was formerly
In the service of the Haytlen government
and Admiral Kllllck was commander of the
Hayttan fleet. June 27 of this year Ad
miral Kllllck disembarked troops from
Crete-A-Flerrot to support General Flr
mln,, one of the candidates for the presi
dency of the republic, and after refusing
to recognize the constituted authorities ha
threatened to boraboard Cape Haytlen. Con
sular representatives protested against such
action being taken, but their efforts failed
of surceea for, a tew days later, the ad
miral did bombard Caps Haytlen, but little
damage waa done. Bince June 27 Crete-A-Plerrot
has been operating In the In
terest of General Flrmln.
The Haytlan government disavowed tho
action of General Kllllck In bombarding
Cape Haytlen and ordered his arreat.
Panther la a cruising vessel of lees than
877 tone displacement and was built In
1901. It Is armed with eight 8.4-inch quick
firing guns, alt 1.4-inch and two machine
guns. Panther left Germany July 29 for
. the Caribbean sea.
Whea Revelation Started.
The present revolution In Haytl started
la ths month of April of this year and
General Tlreaiaa Simon Sam, president of
the Haytlan republic, resigned hi office
and left the Island In May. For the laat
month American Interests In Haytl have
been looked after by Machlas, Commander
McCrea. It recently developed that at
least six European nation confided thy pro
tection of their Interest In Haytl wholly
te the United Btates naval forces In Haytlan
waters. Admiral Kllllck recently declared
Cape Haytlen to be blockaded, but this
blackade was admitted to be Inefficient
and was abandoned by the admiral after
Commander McCrea had made certain rep.
' resentattons to him concerning It In a
letter to the Flrnlnlst admiral, Commander
McCrea Informed hlni that he was charged
with the (protection of British, French,
German, Spanish, Italian, "Russian and Cu
ban interests as well aa these of the United
Slate and that he would prevent a bom
bardment of Cape Haytlen without notice
la advance. In reply to this Admiral Kll
llck promised to observe the usages of
clrlllied warfare In case it became neceaaary
to back with his guns the military forces
operating near Cape Haytlen, and called
his attention to a decree ordering the port
of Cape Haytlen In a state of blockade.
Commander McCrea communicated the fact
of the blockade of Cape Haytlen to the
foreign consuls there and advised them to
make a formal protest, which they did. It
then became apparent that the blockade was
Ineffectual, as aa American schooner had
come In, reporting no blockade.
Blarkade that Didn't Blockade.
When this fact had been established Com
.mender McCrea, proceeded to Cagnette,
found Crete-a-Plerrot In that port and sent
Admiral Kllllck a letter in which he said
that the government of the United States
considered the blockade of Cape Haytlen not
effective, even as a "do facto" blockade, and
the United States denied him (Admiral Kll
llck) the right to search or vlalt any Amer
ican or foreign vessel attempting entrance
Into the harbor of Cape Haytlen. To this
Admiral Kllllck replied that he appreciated
the conditions and admitted the Inefficiency
of the blockade, which he abandoned. The
blockade Incident was thus closed and Ma
ehlas sailed August SO from Gonalvea for
Crste-a-Pierrot stopped the German
steamer Markomannla. sent an armed force
on board and took possession of the war
munitions It carried after Commander Mc
Crea had told Admiral Kllllck that be had
no right to visit or search any foreign ves
ael attempting ta enter Cape Haytlea and
after the admiral had admitted bis blockade

bad only sixteen cents on his person.
Coroner Robinson empanelled a Jury this

IT IS BARTHOLIN'S
(Continued from First Page.)
One of these letters Bartholin accidentally
dropped from hts pocket and Charles Hoeft,
the farmer for whom Bartholin wa working,
read a few line of it. Bartholin, however,
took the letter from him after he had read
the flrat few lines. Hoeft state that the
letter waa addressed to "Oeorge Edwards,"
the name by which Bartholin was known
tere, but that the letter began "My Dear
est Will." A he remembered It, the letter
"My Dearest Will: Lay low and get along
a best you can." Then came a reference to
some money matters not yet settled In Chi
cago, for which the receiver ot tha letter
had evidently been looking. Continuing, It
said: "Keep a stiff upper Up and I'll be
able to help you as soon "
Hoeft had read no more when Bartholin
appeared and seized the letter. Thia wa
about August 25, and the following day Bar
tholin left the Hoeft farm.
An Impression had gained ground here
that an Immense reward had been offered
for the body of Bartholin, dead or alive.
Borne placed the figure at 117,500. When the
coroner'a jury yesterday returned a veruiul
that the suicide waa Bartholin A frantic
effort was made to secure the reward. These
endeavors prompted efforts to conceal the
facts of the suicide's Identity. Coroner Car

the note found on Bartholin' body were

number of newspaper men arrived from Chi

GERMANS WILL MANEUVER, TOO
Emperor William Will Pnt Ills Army

FRANKFURT-ON-THE-ODER. Sept. 7.
In preparation for tbe autumn maneuvers
which begin next Tuesday, 92,000 troops
are spreading over the countryside In two
armies, one of which Is marching to tbe
eastward from here by various parallel
roads, while the other is marching west
from Posen. It hat been raining all day.
Tbe general staff, which Is the brains of
the German military organization, once a
year puts opposing armies Into the field
under what would be the probable condi
tions of war and notes tbe results, es
pecially In the higher question of strategy.
Each regiment and division Is exercised
frequently In minor maneuvers In. all
weathers and under various topographical
condition, but the grand maneuvers In
which several army corps are engaged, take
place one year tn one part of the empire
and the next year In some other locstlou
and are for the working out of fresh com
binations on a great scale.
The operations now beginning will be
extended over a territory which is. roughly
speaking, thirty miles wide and fifty miles
long. Tbe hostile army, the Blues, Is
popularly assumed to be Russian. It Is
supposed to have penetrated the frontier
and to be advancing. It Is composed of
the Fifth corps and fraction of other
corps. The whole is somewhat less than
50,000 mea strong, of which 26.000 are In
fantry, 17,000 cavalry and comprises four
regiments of field artillery, detachments
of horse artillery, machine guns, balloon
ist, pioneers, telegraphers and a commis
The advance guard ot the Blues Is sup
posed to have crossed a line marked by
the river Obra, a tributary to the Warthe,
and to be seeking to gain the left bank
of tile Oder and possession of the railroad
junction at Frankfurt-on-the-Oder.
The defending army, known as the Rede,
Is made up of tbe Third army corps and
the First division ot the guards. It la
somewhat more than 40,000 strong and
composed of 28,000 Infantry, 12,000 cav
alry, five regiments of artillery and tbe
usual complement of aeronauts.,
Tho outpost cf the two artel's are to
come Into touch Tuesday morning between
MesertU. Schwlebua and Butschen. This Is
ail the general staff at present permit
outsider to know. Strategical movement
and tour days' fighting with blank cart
ridges are to follow under the observa
tion of Emperor William and tbe most
gifted military commanders of Germany
and foreign officers of distinction from
Italy, Great Britain, Russia, Austria and
the United Bute. The British group In
clude Earl Roberts, Generals Kelly-Kenny
and Ian Hamilton.
The maneuvers In the purview of the
general1 staff, are a part or the combination
that engage the whole army in Imaginary
action. It Is probable that in the calcu
lations of the general staff the forces are

conjunction "i armies on paper, having '
an object not revealed to tbe public. Tbe
chief value of the maneuvers, therefore,
lies in a consideration which Is only per
ceived by the board of strategists at the
top of the general staff, while foreign vis
itors, not even those ot the first rank, will
see the full meaning of the operations.
Their professional Interest will be en
gaged in witnessing large bodies of troops
handled in the field.
The German officer taking part in the
maneuver are very much In earnest. The
operatlona are no pleasure trip for them,
but a time to test their Judgment and skill
In executing details in the field. Their
tending with their superiors and their
promotion depend upon their own conduct
and that of the men whom they have
trained, but under conditions quite different
from the barrack room and the parade
